Please contact your Congressperson:
Mutulu’s health has been in rapid decline since his parole hearing in April. His legal team appealed the denial of parole and the petition for reconsideration is now pending with the parole commission. The situation is dire– Congress can exercise oversight of the USPC and put pressure on Commissioners Cushwa and Massarone to do the right thing and follow guidelines to grant Mutulu’s parole. Please contact your Congressperson ASAP to request that they contact the Parole Commissioners as well as BOP Director Carvajal and Deputy AG Lisa Monaco. Keep Mutulu in your thoughts and prayers as always, and now is the time for everyone to take action as well.

Hello, my name is ______ and I am a constituent.
I am contacting you regarding Dr. Mutulu Shakur, a federal prisoner in the Bureau of Prisons, whose inmate number is #83205-012.
Dr. Shakur has been diagnosed with terminal bone marrow cancer and he has been told by BOP-contracted doctors that he has less than 6 months to live. He is 71 years old and has spent over 36 years in prison.
Dr. Shakur has not had a disciplinary incident in over 15 years and his conduct in prison has been so remarkable that current and former BOP wardens and employees support his release.
I am urging you to support compassionate release for Dr. Shakur, so he can spend his final days with family and loved ones.
Please contact the United States Parole Commission, BOP Director Carvajal and Deputy AG Monaco to support compassionate release for Dr. Shakur.
Over one hundred faith-based leaders have signed a letter to the U.S. Parole Commission, U.S. Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Department of Justice voicing strong support for Mutulu’s compassionate release.
